4.08/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The beers pours translucent and somewhat hazy. A fluffy, bone white head that sticks around and leaves some nice lacing. No visible carbonation.

Sappy and juicy tropical fruit, grassy, sweet pine, honey, lemon, lime and bread. Really nice 6.5% IPA. Excellent, in fact.

4.09/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy pale yellow, with a thich cap of rich foam. Leaves a lot of nice lacing.

Smell is slightly tart with big helpings of citrus and apricot.

Taste is very balanced, fruity and citrusy with just a hint of malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and hop bite.

Mouthfeel is medium, slightly under carbonated.

Overall, a very good IPA, that is very easy to drink, but maybe lacking a bit of oomph.

Hazy bright golden color with slightly off-white head. Aroma is grassy and floral, quite fresh and hoppy, some melon as well. Taste follows with grassy hops, some meadow flowers, hay, quite rustic overall. Light to medium earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Quite good but I think the original was better.

Tasted on tap at the release day September 21 at Kino (Stigbergets Café/Pub/Restaurant)

I'm back in heaven!
Hazy, yellow beer with a one finger high, white head.
Nose: Fruity, did I say fruity? Orange, mango, citrus - a lot of tropical notes!
Taste: Same as the nose, orange, citrus and tropical fruits. Caramel malt.
Mouth: Medium carbonation, great bitterness.

Edit: Had it today, January 20, 2018 on bottle and it´s almost as good! Wonderful beer!
